Pears on Arches Watercolor Board Demo
Pears on Arches Watercolor Board
Demo by Krista Hasson
This watercolor pears demo was done using Arches watercolor Board and professional grade watercolors by M. Graham, Davinci, and Winsor & Newton. For this demo, I used the following colors:
If you touch the paper or board with the back of your hand and it feels cool it is not completely dry, wait until it is no longer cool to the touch.
Keep your paint thin for layering and let some of the underneath colors show through, your color will build up and have nice depth as you add thin layers of color.
If your paper is still shiny, you can add more pigment. Once the shine goes off the paper do not add more paint. You will get blossoms.
If you do happen to lose your highlights you can gently lift a little paint with a soft brush – synthetics work well for lifting.
